What Shakes in Bakes

We’re just having mad fun at the antiques shops in downtown Bakersfield, aka “Bakes.”  Took a leisurely drive up there because Hydra had a hankering for Basque food. I filled up on cabbage soup, beans and salad at The Wool Growers Restaurant

Doot, doot, doot.  Just one of the guys.

Hydra used to use one of these during a stint as a night watchman.  A clock and key device that would prove he’d made his rounds all over the factory.

One shop has a full sized stuffed grizzly bear. Another has a full sized stuffed bison.  This is the classy version of all that, a little further up 19th Street.

  1. I’m going to have to go there to fetch the haloed Jesus in His pickup. Wonderful post!

    Thanks, Treacy. I didn’t even notice Jesus till I started to frame a photo of the truck. I think I gasped out loud when I raised my camera and saw that!
